Now I want to see David autocross one of his Jeeps.
For trolling, mostly.
This is the most David Tracy answer I could have possibly imagined. Which raises the question: are you why everyone seems to be out of stock this week, David?! Did you get another Jeep that you haven’t told us about?!
41 spline axle shafts?
The seemingly-1 millionth variant of the Challenger
$46 Large for a Challenger that is .3 faster in the quarter than a plebian R/T Scat Pack? Nice try FCA.
It could have had a V8.
When I was a kid, my mom used to have me pump water into the radiator of our Volvo 145. It never went below about 50F where we lived, so this wasn’t problematic. Now I live where 50F is considered somewhat tropical, so it’s all about that sickly-sweet-smelling, syrupy concoction that stays viscous on even the…
I don’t think too many people will find themselves in a similar situation, but stating that she survived by drinking from the radiator is insanely irresponsible. Even if it was propylene glycol in there, it’s still toxic.
Hey David, is that Jeep rusty and screwed up enough for you to buy now?
I hope people didn’t read those headlines and think it’s somehow any bit safe to drink fluids from your radiator. I doubt they would have found her alive had she done that. Vast majority of vehicles on the road will have a mix.
Damn... just how much time free does this dude have in a day?
That’s a lada paper
Still more proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
You shouldn’t feel bad. That’s the nature of Michigan cars. Once they’re over a certain age, their brake lines are doomed to fail. My buddy’s WJ had his rear line blow out a couple weeks ago. It just happens.
This is why I support yearly safety inspections. On this side of the pond those rusty brake lines would’ve failed inspection years ago, preventing the rather serious safety issue of not having any functional brakes.
You didn’t sell him a death trap. You traded him a running car that needed some wear items replaced for a totaled piece of shit that was doing him no good. The fact that it took him this long for the lines to become a problem means he’s coming out even further ahead. If he didn’t have to put up with having a human…
I love how these stories evolve over the months, glad nobody was hurt. It reminds me a ton of the rest of us regular wrenchers learning everything as we go. If you guys ever get someone doing RV stuff, that is 2 decades of material right there just learning about all the crap that breaks and needs to be rigged on…
It’s still an improvement over the Rio your landlord was driving. You could even say it was a Rio good deal for him.
Depends on your landlord.
